Siemens Drives/Motion Control

SINAMICS Variable Frequency Drives

Siemens has the variable frequency drives to address the complete power conversion spectrum – the entire “drive train” – maximizing energy efficiency and productivity improvements.  Integrated products include variable frequency low voltage motor drives (electric inverters), medium voltage drives, and DC drives. Far more than just products, Siemens offers value-add services, such as mechatronic support, project simulation and web-based preventive maintenance. Setting the global standard for decades, Siemens as your experienced service partner enables you to achieve your business goals, whether they are energy savings, energy capture, reduced time-to-market, engineering support, or process improvements – solutions for driving you further than you ever imagined.

Merging Performance and Modularity


SIMOTION, the proven high-end motion control system, features optimal performance for all machine concepts as well as maximum modularity. With SCOUT TIA, you can rely on a consistent engineering that is integrated in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal). Drive-integrated SINAMICS safety functions are of course also available for your customized safety concepts.    With the new software versions, SIMOTION supports object-oriented programming (OOP), the OPC UA communication protocol, as well as user program tests in the engineering without hardware. Thereby, SIMOTION further optimizes its benefits with regard to modularity, openness, and efficient software development.

Product Portfolio: Drives & Motion Control


Low Voltage AC Drives

Low Voltage AC Drives

SINAMICS standard performance drives are perfectly adapted for basic to mid-level control dyncamics requirements. Based on the same platform as all other members of SINAMICS’ drives family, you benefit from a standardized operating concept without requiring additional engineering tools. This family of drives includes SINAMICS V20, G120C, G120, and G120X.

High Performance Drives

High Performance Drives

Whether for single-axis drives used for positioning tasks, for flexible and modular drive systems for demanding single- or multi-axis applications, motion control or machine tool solutions, the SINAMICS S range from Siemens offers the right solution. This drive family includes SINAMICS S120, SINAMICS S120CM and S150.

Servo Drives

Servo Drives

Sinamics servo drives have been designed for applications where motion control functions must be quickly and precisely controlled. From simple position moves to high speed coordinated multi-axis systems including kinematics the Sinamics servo products offer the exact fit across the largest product spectrum.
